    Well... I'll put-in my 2cents! Yes, the weather is Great for us Desert Dwellers. No dust and cool'r/humid days.
    So I have been out a couple times this past week. Intend to make a Wickenburg/ Alamo Lake run on Wednesday but only made about 1/2 of it. Way too much mud and Big Water holes. The pic shows the fence line on the far side of this tank. My regular route runs alongside that fence!

    This Morning I decided to go East on my Road, Constellation. Intended to just roam a few hours. Then I ran onto this sign at the Buckhorn intersection. Well some Adventuresome people may look at that sign and interpret that as "Come Hither", Let's see what's happened to Close This Road!
    Well... Lets just say I had seen it much worse a few Summers ago!

    I'm heading up north for a planned trip this weekend. If the cool temps hold out the following weekend I'll probably be riding down here. Big bike or small. Either way.

    Anyone interested in an Upper Sycamore ride tomorrow or Saturday morning?

    Thinking of riding out of the Mesquite Wash stage at 7AM, B level ride, include Rattlesnake, Squirrel Chaser, Two Gates, Skyline, etc. for around 40 miles total.

    I saw the thread and it does look fun, but I don't currently have a dual sport....I am starting to look for one to take to the Baha next spring and some other rides this winter. Looks like I have a mountain bike ride in Sedona coming together for Saturday so something on two wheels will be ridden!

    How about a 2011 KLR already set up for off road with only 6K miles on it? Only complication is, it's in Indiana! Fly N ride?!

    Heya guys! I picked up a 2001 F650GS a couple days ago. Clean, low miles and in fantastic shape. I love it! Looks like the KLR is history.
